Synopsis

The case of Frank Fuster, who was convicted in 1985 of sexually abusing some 50 children at the baby-sitting service his teenage wife operated out of their Miami home. The sensational case was one of a number at the time that hinged in part on testimony "teased" from alleged victims, and the State's Attorney at the time, Janet Reno, took an active role in its prosecution. Reno stands by it here, but two of her most important witnesses---Fuster's ex-wife and son---now say that he didn't do it. Correspondent: Peter Boyer.
